From the Author --

One of the strongest ties a family shares is food: the traditional dishes, the ritualistic preparation, the celebratory table, and the personal conversations exchanged over meals. With the recipes in this book, I hope to inspire you to explore your own history through recipes and record it for posterity. Through my own explorations, I've learned there are many ways to preserve family ties. There need not always be the perfect photo album documenting each and every event. Instead, a favorite tangible item, say a kitchen tool or apron, artfully displayed may provide more memories than a photo. The chapter "Preserving," will give you ideas for tracing and documenting your own family history. "Celebrating" shares ideas for holidays, birthdays, and more. This chapter, packed with ideas for fun and easy dessert presentations, encourages you to recreate or carry on traditions so they may become a part of future generations' celebrations. There are several simple craft ideas for meaningful decorations that, when handed down, will carry with them fond memories and nostalgic reflections. "Giving" includes tried and trusted recipes that are great for gift giving plus inventive ideas for wrapping, packaging, and sending sweets. I truly believe handmade presents embody the essence of giving, and continuing or creating the tradition of gifting homemade baked goods is a special way to share recipes. In "Creating" I encourage you to start your own traditions. You need not come from a recipe-rich family or historically significant clan to make history. Your recipes reveal a lot about you. Share them, store them, record them.

I've baked several recipes from this book and they've all turned out very close to the expected results.

I have tried a number of recipes in the Sweet Home cookbook and have to say that Rebecca Miller Ffrench has developed a wonderful compilation of great recipes combined with heart-warming stories that invite you into her life and into her home. The stories make you want to create wonderful times and memories with your own friends and families--and after all, isn't that part of why we all love desserts? I very highly recommend the Black Bottom Ice Cream Pie, the Billionaire Bars, any of the muffins (the Banana muffins are a new favorite at my house) and the Strawberry Cupcakes. This book is absolutely wonderful to give as a gift, but do not buy one for someone else if you haven't bought one for yourself first! You will reach for it and bake from it time and again. I do.

Received my copy of "Sweet Home" yesterday. It is warmly-written and contains many delicious-sounding recipes. I am newly retired and first I rediscovered bread baking. Now, I tried the Mudslide Cookie recipe (without cocoa nibs) on Page 148. They are outstanding!! Absolutely my new favorite cookies.

"Sweet Home" is a wonderful variety of desserts to please everyone. I recently received my copy of the book and have already tried "Mom's Banana Cake" on p.36. As described, the addition of oatmeal to the cake gives it an "almost nutty texture" which is delightful.

My family is now anxiously awaiting our next adventure -- making the "Kids' Favorite Bunny Cake" which appears on p. 75. I am sure it will "wow" our Easter guests.

"Sweet Home" is not only a good source of delicious dessert recipes, but the stories that go along with each recipe are highly entertaining and make you want to meet each character in person.

I have been waiting for this book to come out every since Cookie folded. Rebecca Ffrench was the genius behind all those sweet birthday party ideas and now we really see why. This book is beautiful, practical, and, most important, has a real soul. I have already earmarked the bunny cake for Easter this weekend, the strawberry shortcake for my husband's birthday party, and the ice cream cone cupcakes for....every Saturday night from here to eternity! I am so happy this book is finally out!

This is really an inventive cookbook that transported me back into my mom's and my grandmother's kitchen with recipes that I remember growing up with like Boston Cream Pie and Banana Nilla Wafer Pudding. Rebecca's advice on preserving family recipes inspired me to go through my grandmother's recipe box and write down some of my favorites that I can share with family and friends. This is a baking book that I will use over and over again -- especially during the holidays with all of the ideas for gifts.

If you where to own one baking book this book that would give you variety and great recipes this would be it.
I grew up with a Swedish mother that loved to fix crisscross coffeecakes. She titled them Swedish. She made them for bake sales and even baked them and delivered them to her ortho doctor to pay her surgery bill. She was a retired registered nurse with no health insurance. They were even titled B's coffeecakes. This last week I made them for the church coffee and used Rebecca.s suggestion for Marmalade/apricot mix preserves with a pinch of nutmeg. Was that fantastic and they were a hit.
Boy was I surprised to see the illustrated recipe for these crisscross coffeecakes in this cookbook with other scandinavian treats.
Last night I just paged through it in amazement of how many recipes that interested me that I would fix and the variety that interested me..
